The pair, who achieved stardom in the industry, never appeared together in any film again. Despite this, their relationship is very strong and they often accompany each other at events.

Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth took the decision together

Talking about this, Kamal Haasan said, 'This is not a mere coincidence. We have done many films together. Then we decided not to work together. We are not like two rivals. We had the same guru (Tamil filmmaker K Balachander). Unlike any other place (industry), here the competition is open, but there is no jealousy and these are two different paths.'

Decision taken at the age of 20

“We never make sarcastic comments about each other. We took this decision when we were in our 20s. It's not like we have grown up and become wiser now,” the 69-year-old actor told indianexpress.com.
